Pain. Whether the chronic throb of joint deterioration or the shooting stab caused by a break or tear, catalyzes change. The injury may have built over time or originated suddenly, but when you or your loved one’s pain reaches the tipping point, you need help – NOW.
The team at TruOrtho, an all-female orthopaedic surgery practice in Stone Oak, stands ready to create a solution to your bone or joint problem. Three highly skilled, orthopaedic surgeons with a combined total of 50 years of experience specialize in fixing hurting feet, ankles, knees, hips, elbows and shoulders.
Dr. Amanda Marshall-Rodriguez founded TruOrtho, located at 18626 Hardy Oak Blvd. Suite 101, in 2018. She was quickly joined by Dr. Naomi Shields and Dr. Jamie Lynch. The three like-minded female physicians are the only all-woman, fellowship trained, orthopaedic surgery practice in the nation.
The name TruOrtho reflects the nature of their work to make damaged bones and joints right, straight and true once again.
The three have created a practice that reflects their commitment to holistic patient care. They stressed they are concerned about each patient’s well-being, not just their diagnosis. The doctors take time to evaluate each patient’s unique situation to create the best treatment solution.
“We see the patient as a whole,” Dr. Marshall-Rodriguez said. “They are not just an arthritic knee. We are worried about their overall bone health, underlying medical condition, family impact, and their social support system, instead of just that problem and that problem only.”
As fellowship trained specialists, each doctor is willing and able to address a patient’s physical needs surgically, but that is not their first and only option. Dr. Lynch has developed close relationships with physical therapists and Airrosti providers to ensure her patients, many of whom are athletes, are able to achieve best outcomes and get back to doing the things they love.
